Colloquium: Organizational Sustainability and Community Sustainability
Friday, May 7, 2010 - 1:00pm to Friday, May 7, 2010 - 3:00pm

WHAT: Organizational Sustainability and Community Sustainability

Physical environmental sustainability and economic must be studied and addressed together, especially in organizations where long-range, future benefits of sustainability are pitted against immediate, bottom-line pressures and costs.  There is substantial potential, however, to tie together the market and other forces that influence private sector corporations and other organizations, and environmental and societal sustainability.
This presentation looks at approaches to, and influences on success of, the integration of organizational/economic, environmental, societal and cultural sustainability. The generation of organizational value through sustainability is integrated with a model of environmental and societal sustainability. Scientific and applied implications of the model are discussed.

Facilitated by Keith James, Adam Murry and Damon Drown, Department of Psychology; and Desiree Pacheco, School of Business Administration
